...we still aren't talking about racism and how to reduce it. You'll never stop it, but we can do better.

A racist terrorist killed nine people.

Once we've successfully eradicated all traces of the battle flag and all Confederate heroes (many also American heroes, but who cares) maybe we'll actually talk about racism.



OK lets talk.
What is race?
Most of my life when I had to fill out a form, I was unable to honestly check off a box regarding race. I was left with "Other" or I checked no boxes.
I guess my race is Other :-)


MLK said it best
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character"

The problem is some are still judging simply due to color.
Really sad that shooter could not see the incredible character in front of him.

Demanding that "race" be filled out on myriad forms and reports either by the subject or some total ignoramus bureaucrat every minute of the day contributes mightily to that divisive consciousness.

Thank you. That is what we are not talking about...we've got more goody two shoes folks wanting to remove things than we've got trying to actually make things better.

The politicians are all falling over themselves but doing nothing.

My prediction on gay marraige supreme court ruling.
9-0
Yup, you heard it here 1st.
Its about legacy.
The conservative justices see the writing on the wall, not just this country but the entire planet.


This sounds like some serious tin foil hat level stuff.

Yea 9-0 is pretty out there
Just read the Scalia SCOTUcare opinion.
Boy does this guy have anger issues
No way Gay marraige gets his vote and Alito is in his pocket.
Still hope for Clarence Thomas, he did just vote against the Confederate flag :-)

Because there are no good legitimate reasons to be against marriage equality other than hate and/or prejudice. :)



Thanks for making my point!!

Tearing up the Constitution for a cult of personality is worth getting angry about. Which is what the other 6 just did.

For the right price she will wear a confederate flag to the presentation. Don't you wonder who Kimmy will vote for?

Leftist-one who thinks the right to homosexual marriages, free abortions and free college is in the constitution; but the right of the people to keep and bear arms isn't.
